We've always been committed to eliminating the waste from paper business cards.
This week, we're taking that commitment one step further, where we'll plant a tree for every card you purchase.
As we celebrate Earth Day, it is important to consider how our daily practices impact the environment. One area where we can make a significant difference is in the way we exchange business cards. Traditional paper business cards are not only outdated, but they also have a harmful impact on the environment. By switching to Mobilo business cards, we can reduce waste and promote sustainability.
There are many benefits to using our NFC business cards instead of traditional paper ones, and one of the most significant is the reduction in waste. Paper business cards are often thrown away after just a single use, which creates a significant amount of waste. In fact, it is estimated that 88% of business cards are thrown away within a week of being received. This waste contributes to deforestation and adds to the already overwhelming amount of waste that our planet is struggling to manage.
Let's explore the benefits of switching to Mobilo cards in more detail.
Every year, billions of paper business cards are printed, distributed, and quickly forgotten. The majority of these cards are thrown away within a week, adding to the enormous amount of waste we produce. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), paper and cardboard make up the largest proportion of solid waste in the US. By switching to NFC business cards, we can significantly reduce the amount of paper waste generated by networking events, conferences, and everyday business exchanges.
Not all NFC business cards are created equal, and there are several options available in terms of the material used for the card's outer layer. One such option is wood, which is an entirely sustainable and renewable resource. Unlike paper, which requires a significant amount of water, energy, and chemicals to produce, wood can be harvested without harming the environment. Many companies, including ours, take it a step further and commit to planting a tree for every NFC wood business card sold, further enhancing the card's eco-friendly credentials.
Although it may seem counterintuitive, NFC business cards are often more cost-effective than paper business cards in the long run. While paper business cards may appear cheap to produce, the cost of designing, printing, and distributing them quickly adds up. Additionally, the cost of reprinting cards if your contact information changes can be significant. With an NFC business card, your information is easily editable, so there is no need to keep ordering new cards every time something changes.
NFC business cards are incredibly convenient for both the giver and the receiver. Instead of having to carry around a stack of paper cards and manually inputting contact information, an NFC business card can be shared in seconds with just a tap of the card on an NFC-enabled device. For the receiver, the information is instantly saved to their phone, making it easy to stay in touch and follow up later. It eliminates the need to manually input information or carry around a bulky cardholder.
Finally, it is worth noting that an NFC business card can help you make a lasting impression and appear professional in front of potential clients and partners. The sleek design and modern technology of an NFC business card demonstrate that you are innovative, forward-thinking, and care about the environment. It can help you stand out from the crowd and create a positive association in the minds of those you meet.
